By the numbers

  • 15 - The number of games between the last time the Rockets gave up just a single goal. Saturday's 5-1 win in Saskatoon was the first time since a 2-1 shootout victory to the Edmonton Oil Kings on November 11th that the team gave up just one goal.
  • 9 - The number of games the Rockets played from the start of December to the pre-Christmas break. Those nine games were played in just 15 days.
  • 6 - The number of road wins the Rockets had in 2006-2007 when they missed the playoffs. This years team recorded their 5th road win in Saskatoon.
  • 17 - The number of road games the Rockets have played this season. After Christmas the Rockets will play seven of their next ten games on the road.
  • 4 - The number of 20 goal scorers on the team last season. Geordie Wudrick, Mitchell Callahan, Evan Bloodoff and Shane McColgan. This season only Colton Sissons has hit the 20 goal plateau, yet we are not even half way through the season.
  • 4 - The number of players that have dressed for all 35 regular season games this season. With all the injuries, only Colton Sissons, Zach Franko, Tyson Baillie and Mitchell Chapman have dressed in all 35. Last season Franko, Kevin Smith and Evan Bloodoff managed to play in all 72 games.
  • 16 - The number of points earned from BC Division opponents this season.
  • 5 - The number of 16 year-old or younger players the team dressed Saturday night in a 5-1 win over Saskatoon.
  • 15 - The number of games left against BC Division opponents.
  • 9 - The number of games left against teams in the Central Division.
  • 33 - The number of points Zach Franko is on pace to record this season. That would be a 20 point drop from last season.
  • 30 - The number of points Franko recorded after Christmas. Franko had 23 points at the Christmas break last season.
  • 4 - The number of wins Adam Brown is shy of for 100 in his WHL career. Medicine Hat's Tyler Bunz has 95 career victories as a comparison.
  • 18 - The number of night's the Rockets have been in a hotel this season.
  • 2,634 - The number of kilometers the Rockets traveled on a Eastern Conference road trip. That excludes the trip back from Saskatoon to Kelowna. Add that in and the number changes to 3,843 k. Road sick yet?
  • 17.5 - The average age of the Rockets line up Saturday night.
  • 2 - The number of three games in three night's the Rockets play in the second half.
